we come here w/friends once or twice every march but last night was the best 4 meals we've had at Montrio in many years. Everything was a winner, and THAT is a very unusual thing for us to be able to say.

Ample portions of everything except sorbet dessert. nice plate presentation.; ample sauces.

exc.rustic sourdough

Apps- risotto w baby artichokes and bacon
_____risotto cakes w/ tomato concasse
calamari steaks w/ aioli

salad w beets, feta, candied pecans, citrus vngrette.

duck breast w sunchoke potato gratin and mulled cider demiglace
roast chicken,garlic mashed......,robust nage

wine list is pretty good, not as good as it should be in the affordable bottles arena.

LOVE the room; my fav group of large paintings in any restaurant. exc service:friendly ,efficient not fawning .
